Welcome back! I hope you've all had an action packed but relaxing summer and that your children are excited about coming back to school. In July, Miss Jervis and I have spent time with the class getting to know the children and outlining the expectations of the Year 3 curriculum. We are now really looking forward to getting started with the class. Here is a brief overview of what we will be learning about this year:
Autumn Term- Geography based topic
What makes the Earth Angry?
Children will learn about Earthquakes and Volcanoes- their causes and impact. In Art they will have the opportunity to make their own erupting volcano!
Spring Term- Science based topic
How does Usain Bolt run so quickly? Here pupils will learn about the human body- functions of different organs and muscles.
Summer Term- History based topic
Who first lived in Britain? Pupils will become familiar with the Stone Age.
Visit this website regularly to stay informed as to what your child is learning about in the classroom- I will share good examples of learning here.
Finally, the 'Autumn Term Newsletter' is available to download by scrolling down. Also available are the 'Year 3 End of Year Expectations', 'Homework Timetable' and 'Year 3 Spelling Wordlists' documents.
